The LX1616ES from Digigram is a short-form PCI network sound card that can transmit and receive up to 16 EtherSound channels to/from a computer-based audio application and an EtherSound network, utilizing DirectSound and ASIO drivers. The card is a good choice where direct-to-disk applications need to play and/or record selected ES-100 audio channels in a flexible manner.
Examples of applications for Broadcast organizations include multi-channel live-assist, splitting and on-the-fly localization of programs, logging, linking from computer-based call management systems to EtherSound-equipped digital mixing console, and more. The LX1616ES also provides the perfect solution for logging applications such as in a courtroom installation or government building where there is a need to record many channels from different rooms across the building connected via an EtherSound network.
For hotels, conference centers and other multi-room venues, the card offers the ability to play back 8 stereo music programs from a single PC. In a live environment, the capacity to receive up to 16 channels from an EtherSound-ready mixing console and record them straight onto a computer's hard disk for mix down at a later date, offers a highly cost-effective solution for multi-channel recording.
